Delphis formed in 2014 and were winners of the “Purbeck Rising” competition in 2016. Made up of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mike Floyd and classically trained singer and recorder player Julia Simpson, they play festivals around the UK and regularly perform in the London area, where they are based. They play their original songs as an acoustic duo or trio (with cello) or invite other musicians to perform with them for a full band set up with bass and drums.
